Workshop Performance | The Hira Project

  • Amazing Things Art Center 160 Hollis Street Framingham, MA, 01702 United States (map)

Performance of musical selections from Denise Randall's Opera, Fanahy Hira, at Amazing Things Arts Center in Framingham, MA.


Fanahy Hira is an opera and a love story, set in the days leading up to the American Civil War. As the story emerges, an African slave woman captured in Madagascar named Hira finds love in Triae, a Spanish sailor, onboard a slave ship bound for the United States. Hira and Triae through their trials and tribulations on the ship demonstrate great moral examples of courage and committment in a time of American history where cruelty and injustice for blacks and first-nation people was the norm. From these young lovers, there is no "us blacks and 'dem whites," only a collective Humanity.
